I guess to have convictions is a good thing in life, especially when the moral fabric of our society seems to be frayed and falling apart before our eyes. I won't wrong them for that. I responded to my family with a:
I love you, but we just don't believe the same things.
And that is the heart of it all. I am not some hate-mongering, devil-worshiping person who wants ABORTION or GAY SEX in the streets! Don't take my viewpoints like that! I do believe that a woman has the right to make an informed decision and she will have to answer for that decision on judgement day - IN OTHER WORDS, I believe the mother-to-be has the RIGHT to choose! That is not what I would do!
For Gays and Lesbians - I truly believe in two things:
- The same rights we heterosexuals get should be extended to the the G&L community! TOTALLY!!! Why should heterosexual married couples get the only rights and benefits!
- and... This goes against the church teachings, but if two people love each other, that love can be no less valued than if they were a man/woman or man/man, woman/woman couple! LOVE is LOVE! May GOD bless all our relationships so we continue to grow in faith and respect for each other!
I don't apologize for my candor. I speak the way I want to. Sometimes it offends; sometimes it speaks to you. I can be brass in my intellectual discussions, but I do tend to listen to both sides before making a judgment.
